Bring it On!

Only if your camera and flash are water-resistant, do you challenge the monks up on stage with “Bring it on!”. The normally gentle guys took it seriously and gave me and the camera a good splashing. They seemed very happy with the wet result.

The holy water blessing is a Buddhist Wesak Day tradition at the Maha Vihara Temple. It is normally a gentle sprinkle, though. The OM-D lived to tell. Didn’t realise there were so many flower petals in the water until it was frozen by the high speed flash.
